This classic Chilean Chardonnay is a customer favourite here at Cork of the North.

With expressive aromas of ripe citrus, peach and pineapple. On the palate, it is medium-bodied with the fresh fruit character supported by hints of vanilla, hazelnut and toast from the French oak ageing.

The fact that the ‘Classic Series’ is Montes’ entry point says a lot about this producer. The wines are all from their own vineyards, and from different appellations. And what appellations! The reds are all from Colchagua, while the Sauvignon is from the cooler Casablanca. All the grapes are hand-picked to ensure a first selection in the vineyard. The Sauvignon Blanc is made in a fresh, unoaked style which highlights the pristine fruit. Richer on the palate, 60% of the Chardonnay is fermented in oak, and half the blend goes through malolactic fermentation. This gives a texture and complexity seldom found in Chardonnay at this price. The Merlot from Colchagua offers plummy, exuberant fruit that makes this wine so appealing. Both the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Malbec are also from Colchagua and display the depth of colour and flavour that this region lends to its red wines. These wines offer outstanding quality for the price.

Ideal with pasta in creamy sauce, Lobster, Salmon and Risotto.
